The organization has announced a kickoff meeting on Thursday, Mar. 15 (today) at 8 p.m. at Brooklyn Fire Proof East, located at 119 Ingraham St., for prospective participants and volunteers.

The group announced that it is seeking volunteers to handle organizing, neighborhood outreach, press and sponsor relations, print and Web design and Spanish translation.

It is also creating a Bushwick All- Stars program, which will reward those who spend 10 or more hours volunteering with special recognition in the BOS program and online directory.
